The ASIST Suicide Intervention Skills Workshop is for people who want to feel more competent in helping to prevent suicide.
As part of the Every Oredigger Initiative, Colorado School of Mines is working to establish and maintain a strong stratified campus support network of students, faculty, and staff knowledgeable about mental health and suicide and able to respond effectively to those who need help. Therefore, we will be offering ASIST Suicide Intervention Skills Workshop on July 24th & 25th from 8:30am-4:30pm.
The ASIST Suicide Intervention Skills Workshop is for people who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. During this two-day, highly interactive, practical and practice-oriented workshop, ASIST teaches trainees to provide skilled intervention and develop a collaborative safety plan to keep someone safe and alive.
Who should attend ASIST? Anyone who has in-depth one-on-one conversations with students would benefit from this training, as these conversations might lead to discussions of challenging life situations, including suicide. This training is open to anyone who is interested in being trained in these more in-depth intervention skills. Attendees should be retrained every 3 years. Attendees must be present for the entire training, which consists of two full days.
Coffee, snacks, and lunch will be provided both days of training. To register for the ASIST workshop, please register here: https://forms.office.com/r/wy3tm66w4M
